My little sugar cubes

I've been going through sugar cubes like gangbusters, and the other night I stopped at Walmart to pick up some more. Well, they had no white sugar cubes but did have these Roland Rough Cut Demerara cubes, which I have seen at Whole Foods for a lot more $$.  I snapped it up for the boys, and it's pretty neat! Harder and less cube-like than white sugar cubes, it does not crumble as easily in your pocket. The aroma is stronger and also delightful. I read up on it.

 Demerara sugar is a large-grained, somewhat crunchy, raw sugar with origins in Guyana. Unlike brown sugar, which has the added molasses flavor, Demerara has a natural caramel-like flavor that hasn’t been refined out. Demerara sugar is also referred to as Turbinado sugar in many markets, which has more to do with how the sugar is processed in turbines, than where it originates.

It's just under $3 a box -- not bad!


  1. One sugar cube to a horse is equal to giving a child five chocolate bars!! I wont get into hoof and metabolic issues since google has all the info you could need on this.

    Why not chop up a few carrots or apples instead? The sugar content will not be doing damage to your horses and you get pounds for $3

  2. I'll have to see if our Walmart has these; thanks for the tip!

  3. That seems so much nice for treats under saddle, not disintegrating in my pocket.
